Zoe was pointing up at the cupboard in the kitchen frantically requesting "chicken pox". I know she hasn't had chicken pox yet, and it would be preferable for her to get them in childhood...but why is she soooo desperate to get chicken pox right now and why does she think they're in the kitchen cupboard?
Through a process of elimination we finally determined that the chicken pox to which she was referring was in fact a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I guess it sounds similar...if you say it 3 times fast.
She also calls cheese puffs "cheese pox".
Kaya and I have been working on paper mache projects this week. When I announced, "I need to go put a layer on my paper mache", Zoe, the ever possessive one competed with me, "No, *I* want to make paper nap-say".
In a similar tone, when I was walking through the grocery store, reading my list aloud as I searched for cauliflower, Zoe misheard me and contested, "No, it's *MY* flower". Apparently I mumbled it because Rene also misheard me and thought I was looking for "Molly's Dower". He assumed it was some weird herb or homeopathic thing but was baffled as to why I was looking for it in the freezer section. D'Oh.
The paper mache I was working on was a dragon mask for Kaya's halloween costume. She is going to be the America Dragon. Her dad has been spending weekends at the sewing machine (I can't sew to save myself) while I worked on the mask. Zoe came up up observe me and saw how sticky it all looked. "Is that sticky?". "Yes Zoe, I'm making Kaya's mask. She is going to be a dragon". "Yeah. She's going to be a sticky dragon!"
